Jason Eisener Discusses His Breakthrough Film ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’ And More!

Jason Eisener Discusses His Breakthrough Film ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’ And More!

Director Jason Eisener first captured the attention of film fans worldwide with his award-winning faux-trailer “Hobo with a Shotgun” at the 2007 SXSW Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino ‘Grindhouse’ Trailer Competition. A lifelong movie fan, it turned out that his win there was just the first stop on what would prove to be a whirlwind ride for this up-and-coming director! Fast forward to 2011 — Eisener has just unleashed the gritty, action-packed, no-holds-barred feature length version of ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’ on the world. The film features the iconic Rutger Hauer in the lead role and has developed a cult following that is growing larger with each passing day! Not to shabby for a laid back guy from Canada! Icon Vs. Icon‘s Jason Price recently caught up with Jason Eisener to discuss his past and cinematic influences, the influences that helped to shape the world of ‘Hobo With A Shotgun,’ the possibility of a sequel or spin-off, and his advice for aspiring filmmakers!

We always hear that the entertainment industry isn’t for the faint of heart.  What helped you pursue a career as a filmmaker instead of going in a different direction?

Well, when I was a kid I wanted to be a marine biologist and I asked my Grade 5 schoolteacher, like, if I could make a living doing it, and he said that I would have a really hard time. So, I started thinking about other things and then someone didn’t tell me you don’t make that much money being a filmmaker either! [laughs]

But, basically what my passion just kind of came from, mostly, like at the end of junior high I was into skateboarding and that’s how I first picked up a video camera and just started filming skits with my friends in our down time, and then started really digging into films and discovering my love for cinema.

I think it was like Grade 9, we took over my parents’ backyard shed, and we just turned it in to, like, this screening clubhouse where we just had a VCR and a couple bunks. But we spent our whole summer in there swimming and watching movies, and we just cleaned out, like, our local video store — like horror, action, sci?fi section — within a span of a summer, and we then when it came time when we got to high school we just used every opportunity we could to film any project that a teacher would give us to try to make it into an opportunity to make a movie.

And they made a film and video class just because they saw, like, the interest for it, and so, there in high school, I had this amazing film teacher by the name of Brian O’Grady who just let our imaginations run wild. He basically didn’t put, like, a cap or a limit on anything, and that’s, I think, where I probably got to discover myself as an artist and the kinds of movies I wanted to make the most and then I saw ‘Evil Dead II,’ and I think it was playing 11 or something and that’s when I saw that movie that I just knew that I wanted to be a filmmaker for the rest of my life. When I saw how Sam Raimi moved with his camera I just I couldn’t believe it! I thought, “Wow if one can make a living doing that, that’s pretty awesome!”

And so I went into NFCC program like a community college and it’s a two-year program where they just — where they teach you how to use the gear and the lighting set ups and set etiquette and how every position works. So, we just took it as an opportunity to learn everything, and when we got out of school we could just do the lighting edit, shoot it, direct it, produce it, record the sound, mix it, compose music, and it just really gave us the tools to do neat films. So, that’s kind of sort of a really long answer to your question.

No, that’s great. You mentioned Sam Raimi. Is he or is there one person you would sight as your biggest professional influence?

That’s a really good question. I don’t know if I could just put it on one person. Shit, yeah, I don’t know, because there’s been so many films and filmmakers that have influenced me so much in my life. Like, he’s definitely one of them, and John Carpenter and when I saw Walter Hill’s ‘The Warriors’ when I was in college I was kind of going through a hard time, and I didn’t know if I was going to continue pursuing filmmaking and I saw ‘The Warriors’ and that just totally revitalized me and inspired me. And I knew, like, when I saw that movie I was just like man it just reminded me of when I saw ‘Evil Dead II.’ It was like if filmmaking can be this cool if it’s possible for a movie to be as cool as ‘The Warriors’ then that’s what I want to do. I got to do that. I got to figure out a way to make that happen.

That’s awesome. I’m a big fan of ‘The Warriors’ myself, and now that you say that, I can kind of see a little bit of ‘The Warriors’ in ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’ actually.

Yeah, absolutely. It’s my favorite film of all time. Like, I can say that honestly that is my favorite movie. Just I love that film and also how it inspired me in my life. It’s kind of leaking into my work, that’s for sure.

For people who may not be familiar with it, what initially sparked the idea for the ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’ trailer?

Well, there’s this place that me and John go to every once in a while to come up with ideas for movies and it’s called Ronny’s Pizza and it’s this pizza joint that’s, like, it’s kind of down the street from where we lived and grew up. And we were there one day just kind of pitching ideas back and forth and one of our best friends named Mojo was hanging with us. And he had really long hair and he had a shirt with a bunch of stains on it and he had just bought this air soft shotgun that shoots plastic pellets and John and I were just shooting ideas back and forth, just random pitches, and Mojo speaks up and says, “Well, why don’t you guys make a movie about me?” And John just kind of looks him up and down and says, “What a hobo with a shotgun?” And it just kind of clicked. Like, we knew right then and there when those words came out of his mouth we were like, “Whoa, that has a really cool meaning and a really cool idea.”

But we were kind of like, what can this movie be about? And we went outside on that street, it’s called Main Street, and there is, like, strip clubs. There’s pawnshops, there’s sex toy stores, it’s dirty and it’s kind of a greasy street, and we just started envisioning, outside the windows of that pizza shop, we started envisioning this hobo walking down the street and hanging outside the convenience store and there was a robbery and it took place and the guy who owned the convenience store was really good to this homeless guy, and he was giving him change or food when he could. So, this hobo was, like, standing in this line to buy a lawn mower, but he saw in that pawnshop window and he goes over and he trades in his nickel and dimes for a shotgun and just walks back over and takes care of the cops and saves this convenience store and that was the idea and then we left like that pawnshop ?? that pizza shop with, and when the contest came about we kind of pulled that idea out and started just elaborating on it.

Was it a difficult process like flushing out the trailer into a script for a feature length film?

It was and it wasn’t. We were just writing like we write in the future film scripts before but this was definitely our first real tackle at it in a sense. When we came up with the idea for the trailer, and the day we went to go shoot it, we just ?? the night before, we shot it the night we heard about the contest, and we basically just put that day and that afternoon running a treatment as what we thought the whole film was about. And so we came up with all the scenes, well, most of the scenes and then kind of picked out which moments we thought would be best for the feature and then we went over and we shot those moments. And then we went back to write the feature, it wasn’t long before we were able to bang out that first draft, but we wrote like 27 other drafts over the years. We would get bored with ideas or come up with new characters or just I don’t know. It seemed like almost every draft was almost kind of completely different in a way.

One of the things that really makes the film jump from the screen is Rutger Hauer’s performance. How did you get him to come aboard for the film?

Well, me and John, when we were spending the time in my parents’ back shed, the first actor I remember we popped in a copy of ‘The Hitcher’ and we were just blown away by Rutger’s screen presence. At first we were just tracking down our favorite directors and then Rutger was the first actor we sought after every one of his films, and then I remember seeing ‘The Blood of Hero,’ which I think is probably still my favorite Rutger Hauer movie. It just, like, that was always a huge inspiration in the back of my mind like when we were writing the hobo character and so when it came time ?? the distributor asked us to write or list a top of our top five favorite actors that we would love to play the role. And it was just obvious that Rutger would be at the top of that list, but I never thought that he would do it. Like, I didn’t even figure we would be able to reach him.

I didn’t think it would ever happen, but I thought it would give people a kind of class and style idea that I want to bring to the character, and so I wrote down and within a couple days they got a hold of his agent and his agent read the script and thought it was right for Rutger, but thought Rutger wouldn’t like it, and he basically sent him the script and he said, “It’s a bunch of kids and they’re making this movie. They don’t have much money, I don’t think you’re going to like the script,” and for Rutger, whenever someone tells him he doesn’t like something or that he won’t like something, it kind of piques his interest. He wants to know why people would think he doesn’t like something.

And so he read the script and he thought it was crazy, and he didn’t know what to say. He said he actually just wanted to get on Skype with me, and so a couple days after that I got on Skype with him and he was my first Skype call. And we spoke for about an hour, and we just hit it off, and we’ve been talking to him for 10 or 15 minutes, I told him what I wanted to do with the character and he really connected with it. We just actually spent a lot of time talking about his love for ocean conservation, and I grew up wanting to be a marine biologist. I share a lot of the same thoughts that he does and we really hit it off over that stuff, and it was so close to pre-production. He was in the house actually a week after that!

As a director, did having an experienced actor like him take away some of the burden of being a first time director?
 

Take away a burden, no. I felt more stress! [laughs] Especially during the prep just ’cause ?? I’m first and foremost a film fan, like, before I’m anything else. So, he was my favorite actor growing up and still is my favorite actor, and, so, I was really nervous in prep I can remember before that conversation I had with him I couldn’t even eat my lunch. I was really nervous for him having that week of knowing he was coming and I’m going to have to give direction to one of my favorite actors, and he’s worked with some of my favorite directors … I just thought, like, now I’m gonna look like a chump! [laughs]

But he was so awesome. We just hit it off. We went out for coffee and we just spent three days, like, hanging out at the office just jamming on movies and music and we’d crack open the script every once in a while and just talk about ideas. But, we mostly just spent our prep together just hanging out and talking about the character, talking about each others lives and inspirations and just really connected. It honestly felt, like, someone I had known my whole life. He felt like an old college buddy or an old best friend, like, I haven’t seen in a long time. And he just made that so comfortable onset. He was just super cool to everyone. He was so cool to all of my friends and crew.

He was more than just an actor; he came on as one of the filmmakers. Like one of the team, because as soon as he got there, you know I’m pretty close with my team, like my friends and my crew and my producers and my writer, and we were always jamming on stuff together, like, here just growing up together working together and stuff, and he just came and he jumped in on that team as soon as he got here. It was so cool to see. So, he was, like, even, like, things we would have problems with he would speak up and say, “Hey, boys I’ve seen this like done a hundred times. Here, like, let me show you.” And he would stand and help us figure it out.

What would you say was the biggest challenge for you on the shoot?

The biggest challenge, well the biggest challenge I guess was probably just the shooting schedule and the amount of stuff we got to do in just a short period of time. And doing a lot of the action and stunts and gags and me being a first time filmmaker, there’s definitely inexperience there. And so it was just we had, like, we were averaging over 45 setups per day and just going, going and going. And in order to make our day it was just, like, it was crazy.

But we just kept the energy alive and just kept everything moving. But, other than that, that was more of just, like, that was, like, the work but I guess some of the mental struggles were just being a first time filmmaker and having to direct a crew and be a team leader, it becomes a little nerve racking beforehand, but once I got into production I just felt I was meant to do it.

Jason Eisener

But, I remember in prep I wanted to be a good leader and it was all these emotions building up to shooting and, yeah, I just wanted to be super confident and everything in every decision I made and that’s, like, one of the most important things a filmmaker can be is confident. You have to show your team that you are confident about everything. Like, once you appear to have lost confidence in what you’re doing then your team is gonna lose confidence in what they’re doing, and when you’re working on a film you’re working with a bunch of amazing artists. It’s not like just a couple of artists on set. It’s like everyone working on the film is, like, a really good artist and your job as the director is to keep them inspired, and you’ve got to go around and make sure that all these artists are inspired and make art, and I feel that that’s one of the most important things a director can do on set, because if all the artists on the movie are inspired to make it work then hopefully that’s going to translate into the film.I really wanted to be a really good team leader for my crew and so that was probably the hardest part was just making sure and building up that confidence and being confident in myself.

You mentioned the time frame and the tensions being high for your first feature. What was your favorite memory from your time on the set with all that looking back on the whole process?

I think my favorite moment on set, the one I’ll probably take with me forever, is it was one of the last days of shooting we only had, like, eight people for the crew and it was a very small crew. We were shooting the opening train sequence for the opening credits, and it was a beautiful day and we had the whole day with this train basically, and we just had fun. Like, there was no stress. We only had to get a couple shots, and we had to shoot that opening sequence, like, for the one day. It was just great. So, I had a lot of time to do it, and it was just wicked. Like, we were just having a good time. Like, Rutger got to drive the train, and it was a beautiful sunset and I can remember just sitting in the boxcar and Rutger and it was the first time in, like, a year-and-a-half probably where things were so calm. We were done shooting the movie pretty much, and there was not a lot of crazy stress or anything and I got to just kind of sit back for once and actually just realize what had happened, like, over the past year-and-a-half. And I’m looking and I look above the monitor and just see all my crew and my friends hanging out in this boxcar and Rutger on the other side of the land and I just thought, “Holy shit, like, what happened? Like, we’re making a Rutger Hauer movie. This is crazy.” And it was just there was definitely tears. I just, like, had a moment to actually sit back and realize what had happened.

Fans are really started buzzing about the film pretty early. Were you expecting the film to generate the buzz that it has and has it been a bit of a double edged sword in a way with illegal downloading. Can you tell us a little bit about that and how it’s affected you as a filmmaker?

Yeah, sure. The first part of your question ?? I didn’t ?? I thought when we made the film, I would poll out of the audience a little bit more. I thought there’d be a lot more people ready to watch what we had done but it’s been like ?? it’s totally been, like, surpassed our expectations. I thought it would divide our audience like maybe 50/50 like 50 percent of the audience would hate it and 50 percent of the audience would dig it, but I’ve been surprised, like, at how well it’s been received and how the critics have taken to it, and how it’s been building up an audience. It’s awesome. I always hoped it would. It’s, like, the hope of filmmaker to have an audience or a movie ?? and I worked hard to make a film for an audience. Like, it’s not completely just, like, a personal ?? it wasn’t just for us.  It’s for a huge audience out there for it, hopefully. It’s great to see they’re supporting the film.

Illegal pirating — I’m new to this, and so I’m learning a lot. Like, I know we’ve got to make back our budget on the movie. It’s sold to a couple territories and you know there’s like ?? we still have to pay everyone that invested their money into it. And so I hope it does. I’m glad, like, people are, like, there’s a demand for the movie and people really want to see it and they’re downloading it. I think that’s awesome, and I’m getting a lot of support from people that said they’ve downloaded and said they’re definitely gonna pick it up when it comes around in DVD and Blu-Ray.

So, I don’t know. I’m just learning from this right now, and I’m not too sure of what the outcome will be, but hopefully it’ll be positive and hopefully, I don’t know. Like, it’s definitely a different age with film distribution right now, and there’s no way stopping a movie from getting online. It’s just impossible. So, there’s nothing I can really do to fight it. I’m seeing that now, and hoping that the people that do dig the movie support it, because if the movie makes its budget back and does okay there’s a good chance we’ll get to work again and we’ll get to bring another movie back to Nova Scotia and everyone that has worked so hard on this movie will give them an opportunity to work again.

I did read that there’s a possibility for a possible spinoff. What could you tell us about that?

Well, I don’t know, we’ll see. There are two characters in the movie that people really seem to groove on, and they call it ”The Plague.“ There are these two bounty hunters that have to ?? they get called by The Drake to take down the hobo and we kind of made those like ?? we’ve had those characters kind of floating around in the back of our minds for quite some time.

And they’ve kind of leaked into some of our other short film work that we’ve done before, and we wrote a treatment for a future film about them called “The Plague” that I love and I’m super excited about the idea.

So, I don’t know. Maybe if there’s enough interest, maybe i’ll have an opportunity to make that film some day, but I’m also open to ?? I’d also love to make another hobo movie as well too. We have lots of other hobo stories. Like, I was saying before we had 27 drafts of the spread that were all pretty much different, and so we just have so many ideas of so many stories that I would love to tell more tales of the hobo. But right now we’re writing a marital arts film, that’s our concentration, but we’re always thinking about ideas in that same hobo world.

Can you tell us a little bit about the marital arts picture?

Yeah, I can’t say too much because we’re developing it now, and so I can say what it’s about now and then it could totally change in a week or two. It takes place in a high school. It’s very much in the world of hobo with a shotgun. It’s very influenced by ‘The Wanderers’ and ‘The Class of 1984’ and ‘Rock -n- Roll High School’ and ‘Riki-Oh’ and we’re gonna try and make a kick ass Canadian marital arts movie ’cause there haven’t really been any! Other than ‘Vampire Hunter’ and ‘Harry Knuckles.’

What would be your best advice to someone who wants to pursue a career in filmmaking?

I think you’ve got to spend a lot of time working for free, and I know it’s tough. It’s tough to pay the rent and, you know, work a hard job and then have to go to work in the film world which is really tough as well and work for free. But, you’ve got to spend a lot of time working for free and just making connections and usually when you’re helping out other people will return the favor when it comes time to make your own film, so you’ve got to spend a lot of time working really fast on other people’s short films and just giving them your time and your energy for free and then hang onto all of that when it comes time to manage your own film and bring out all those people that you helped out. And there’s a lot of that. You spend a lot of time working for free for a while just building connections and building relationships with people, so that when it comes time to make your own film you’ll have people who will give you their free time as well.

And, another thing too is I think is really important for filmmakers is to grab a hold of their inspirations and know how they perceive the world as artists and to track it down, track down things that really inspired you as a kid or really caught your attention or … let me give you an example of tracking down something that you know influences you and how you perceive the world. For me is growing up I spent a lot of time watching, like, ‘80’s television. Like, ‘80’s cartoons and ‘80’s wrestling. For me, whenever I see a certain color combination go together like yellow, a certain yellow, or red my mind instantly clicks to Hulk Hogan, like, from WWF back in the day. And, I think it’s important to recognize those things and track those things down, and then start applying those things to your own work. And so, like, with Hobo I don’t know if anyone will ever see it, but when I was designing characters for the movie I was going back to how ‘80’s wrestling was attracting my eye as a kid and what they did to attract my attention. And so I tried to design my characters in a kind of way that they did using crazy color pallets and maybe one day some kid, when they see a certain white or black together, they might think of either Ivan or Slick in the drake or maybe blue and the yellow and they’ll think of the hobo.

I think it’s important for artists to really know how they perceive the world and know if they can track down what they like about art and start applying it to their own work and being true to that. Then their work is gonna be cool, and I think people will connect to it and you’ll develop your own style.

And so, I just think its one thing I’ve preached to filmmakers. They kind of spend a lot of time doing that and stay inspired as well too. Like, being inspired is the most important thing. If you’re not inspired you have to stop everything and figure out what it is that’s either blocking you or that’s not inspiring you or finding something that is inspiring you. Whether it is you’ve got to go climb a mountain or whatever it is you’re gonna have to do it so you can be inspired and keep preying on it. It’s really important.

We really appreciate your time and I think it’s been a great interview. It’s really eye opening to see how you put it all together and everything. So, it’s really been great talking to you.

All right, wicked, man thank you so much!

Director Gil Medina Talks Danny Trejo’s ‘Vengeance’

Director Gil Medina Talks Danny Trejo’s ‘Vengeance’

feature-medina-vengeance

The spirit of independent filmmaking is alive and well in America. There is no better example of that never-say-die attitude than writer/director Gil Medina and screen legend Danny Trejo. The passionate duo, who were fed up with a broken system content on lumping films together only to turn a quick profit, have launched their own unique strategy to bringing their high-octane revenge flick, ‘Vengeance’, to the masses. They are bucking the system and giving back to film lovers by doing something that’s never been done before in the movie business: giving the film away for free. Enter the “Vengeance Army” – legions of dedicated fans hell bent spreading the word about the the film. As part of the movement, the fans who give away the most DVDs – which are free, with a small shipping and handling fee – will be given substantial speaking roles or even an opportunity co-direct a scene in one of ITN Films upcoming features. Medina and Trejo’s motivations are simple: Show that you can successfully make and distribute a film on your own terms and to give back to those who got you there. Icon Vs. Icon’s Jason Price recently caught up with Gil Medina to discuss the challenges of making the film, what Danny Trejo and the rest of the cast bring to the table, the power of The Vengeance Army and along with all the other exciting things that surround this up-and-coming director.

What first made you decide to pursue a career as a filmmaker?

I guess what made me decide to pursue a career as a filmmaker is the love of story, the love of telling a story, the love of just stories period. And then, growing up in the ghetto, my mom used to drop me off at the movie theaters all the time while she would go out and party [laughs] so that’s kind of how I grew up: in the movie theaters. And so that was a place to take me and drop me off for the day and let me see movies while she partied all day.

Who or what were some of the outside influences that helped shaped the filmmaker we are seeing today?

My outside influences would definitely be Scorscese, definitely De Palma and I would definitely have to say Spielberg. But basically De Palma and Scorscese, definitely Spielberg, and a lot of the Spanish movies that I used to watch when I was a kid with my grandma.

You wrote and directed the film ‘Vengeance’, how did that process originally start and how did the script come about?

Danny Trejo and Gil Medina

Danny Trejo and Gil Medina

Well Danny and I met in 2000 I guess, when he was shooting a movie. I owned a nightclub and they had a pre-party before the movie started for everyone to get to see each other, there were some pretty heavy stars there. But I had been a fan of Danny Trejos from ‘Heat’ and ‘Dusk til Dawn’, and I saw him and I was like “Aw man, how ya doin? I like your work.” I got him a table so he could sit down and I said “Hey let me get your drinks for you, you don’t have to buy drinks all night.” and he said “Look I don’t drink I’m an NA guy.” I’m like “Oh, that’s cool.” So at that point I gave him my number, he wanted my number because he was in the city and he wanted to know where the good places were to eat. He stays in shape and works out everyday and eats right, so he called me and I took him to a lot of different places to eat and we hung out. The greatest thing was that a lot of people were trying to take him out to bars and nightclubs, and I think it was a Friday night he called me and he said “What are you doing?” and I said “Well I’m gonna go to church tonight do you want to go?” and he said “Church?! Everybody’s tryin to take me out to party and I don’t party.” So I said “Come on I’ll meet you.” and we went to church together, and I think that’s when we started bonding together because it’s about life and movies are a job. So we just started hanging out and became good friends, and I told him that I like to write and had written a couple of screenplays. Back when Ice Cube was shooting the movie ‘Friday’, Cube and I had been friends from the music business for quite some time, and he invited me down to the set of ‘Friday’. I watched how they shot it and saw how it worked, and it was like “Wow, this is pretty cool!” and Cube said “Look man, you can do this! What I’m doin for the brothers you can do for the Hispanics. You can do this” I said, “That’s great Cube I appreciate that.” and he said “Research the industry and I’ll help you.” So I ran into Trejo and we started hanging out, we were at Sundance I think it was 2005 and we went to Kevin Costner’s screening of ‘Upside of Anger’, we were just hanging out doing the whole “Hollywood thing” and the conversation was that Danny should be doin his own thing. And that he could carry something like a vigilante type of film and then I thought of Charles Bronson and one of Danny’s friends said something about Bronson, and we started talking about him. I said “Danny, hey look you should do a vigilante film you could really pull this off and make it happen.” So he said “Well put it together.” and so I started putting it together and I got a hold of a guy who knows how to format stuff, I’m more of a dialogue person I’m not really a typer, and he just kind of formatted it for me and put it together. I got Danny to sign and I called studios. They were like “Nah, Trejo is a character actor, it’s not gonna work.” and everyone just kept telling me he was a character actor and it wouldn’t work, I said “It worked for Bronson, he was a character actor!”. You know Bronson was a character actor with ‘The Magnificent Seven’ and all the films he did, but he finally did ‘Death Wish’ and boom he blew up and it worked cause he was that bad ass that everybody liked. I kept telling them “It worked for Bronson, Bronson’s properties made like $120 million dollars between the five of them in 1980.” I even called Paramount because I wanted to buy the license for ‘Death Wish’ so I could use the name ‘Death Wish’ because it would’ve been great, but they said no they wouldn’t give it up. So we decided we would go our own way and I sold my interest in the club, I sold some cars and some property and I put the money together. I got a few investors and I went after it. People just kept saying “Nah it isn’t gonna work, Trejo can’t do it he’s not a star he’s a character actor.” I kept telling them they didn’t know Trejo and they haven’t been around him. If you go anywhere with him, let’s say a restaurant, the busboy, the dishwasher, the cook, the waiters, the valet will shut that restaurant down to take pictures with Danny. That’s the audience he has and the studios are asleep, they don’t get it. So that’s how it came together, we shot the film and it went through it’s stages and it’s trials and we got it to where it’s at and that’s where we are.

I wanted to say something about this: I read an article in Variety Magazine where it said that there were no takers at AFM and someone said that there were none because this film will probably put you to sleep, but there were no takers at AFM because we wouldn’t accept offers because no one had a gameplan. None of the distributors had any kind of gameplan. We got offers from everybody, but the problem was they wanted to bundle it up with ten films and throw it against the wall. That’s not a gameplan. They didn’t have a marketing plan. You know independent distributors don’t have marketing plans, they just throw as much stuff out there as they can and hope to sell something. That’s the sad part about independent film. If I didn’t have a guy like Danny Trejo that I was working with I would’ve done what every other independent guy does and give up the film for five or six years and watch it flop. But Danny said “No uh uh, we can’t do that. We’re gonna flop because no one has a marketing plan?” So it’s not that we didn’t have any takers, it’s that we wouldn’t accept any of their offers because no one knew what they were doing. I just wanted to clarify that.

dannytrejo-4What do you think that Danny Trejo brought to the table performance-wise that you think others might have overlooked?

That’s really good, because in this picture it was very important for me to bring a side out of Danny that no one has seen. There’s a lot of really dramatic stuff in this movie where he really had to play, he has to really act. He does a good job of it, he has to break down, he loses his wife and daughter so he has to feel that emotion. We brought, I think, a real humaness to that bad ass, a real understanding of the character in the sense that this character was wronged and he goes out and seeks vengeance but he’s a nice guy and he’s only takin vengeance on the bad guys. Kind of cleanin up the streets you know? So I think people are asleep when it comes to Danny’s depth.

In addition to Danny Trejo you also have a bunch of great actors in the film: Jason Mewes, Robert Burke, Diamond Dallas Page, how did you go about getting the right mix of people together when you started the film?

I met Dallas Page on the set of ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ with Danny, and I really liked his intensity. I said “We’re looking for the adversary, we’re looking for Danny’s enemy in this film. Are you interested?” And he said that anytime he could get an opportunity to work with Danny he was going to, so he came into the game from that. I met Jason Mewes because their was a character, a tattoo artist from prison, that Danny really liked and he wanted to give Jason a shot to do something other than being a stoner. So that’s how that call went out. And Donal Logue, who’s Danny’s friend, just fit the Buzz character. He played it well so he worked out. Robert Burke, that was the luck of the draw because I think he was doing ‘Munich’ at the time, I don’t remember what it was but he was doing something big at the time. But he like Danny and he wanted to work with him so that’s how we got him. Everybody wanted to work with Trejo, it’s kind of Trejo’s “coming out”.

What did Baby Bash and Tech N9ne bring to the mix?

dannytrejo-5

Baby Bash has been a friend of ours for years and he’s never been in any film situation so I thought it would be good if we got him. So we just called him and asked if he wanted to do something and he said “Yeah!”. Noel G who played in ‘Street Kings’ and ‘Training Day’, who plays Diablo in the movie is a very very intense actor, he came along and I thought he and Bash would “work” together and that’s how that came about. Tech N9ne is a very interesting story because I’ve known him for about ten years from the music industry and I knew him from a friend of mine named Roger Troutman from Roger and Zapp who had passed away. Tech N9ne and I were good friends of Rogers, and being in the music business I’d been to a lot of shows with Tech N9ne and watched him grow. Nobody knew, nobody could have even foreseen, that at the time this movie is getting ready to come out that Tech N9ne is the number one independent underground rapper in the world. He is underground like Eminem was underground before he became a household name. Now Tech N9ne is a household name, but he’s a household name to the underground. So what’s happening is the underground always had their finger on the pulse, the big scene, and Tech is huge! He’s got millions and millions of fans, he did a a download and got like ten million people to download his music for free. He’s huge, and we’re really lucky to have Tech N9ne. You know Danny did Tech’s video “Like Yeah”, that’s his latest video and Danny was in that. So Tech is a really good friend of ours and as a matter of fact Tech is giving us a song for this movie.

That was my next question: What can you tell us about that Tech N9ne track?

It’s intense. It’s crazy! We’re working on putting a couple of songs together and that’s one of the reasons that we’re doing a push. We’re pushing back the release of ‘Vengeance’ because we’re getting a lot of people who have joined the Vengeance Army who are saying “Look I need a chance to push this out and I need a deadline on the Vengeance Army.” We have so many people who are signing on to give this away that we have to be fair to them. We’re pushing our release to 2010. Plus, who wouldn’t wait for a track from Tech N9ne from a movie he is in. So hopefully we’re going to get that straight. There is another friend of Danny’s who’s in the movie business and the music business who we are waiting to see if he’s going to give us a song but I can’t say who that is yet. But I will update you because I’m hoping to use you for our updates.

That sounds great! For you as a director, what were the biggest challenges in making this film?

Oh man, the biggest challenges…that not only as a writer, but as a director, as a producer because it was so independent I sometimes has to be the guy who had to drive people back and forth, sometimes I had to go pick up food, I had to do everything. You know, as well as being Danny’s partner, it’s hard. When I go on movie sets with Danny he’s like “What do you think about this scene? Watch this scene.” and if I’m like “This doesn’t look real man.” he’ll go “No no I gotta shoot this again.” So it was that thing where I’ve been on sets with him before and it was tough because I couldn’t focus on what I wanted to do, which was direct. I got great stuff don’t get me wrong, but next time I’m only going to write, direct and produce. I’m not going into the executive producing, I don’t want that responsibility.

dannytrejo-9

You previously mentioned the Vengeance Army, how did that idea originate?

The Vengeance Army came together because we picked up a hitchhiker, the kid was going to L.A. and he was like “I’m gonna make it, I’m going to be big in the business!”. We dropped him off on Hollywood Boulevard and the reality of it is that there are a million kids on Hollywood Boulevard with guitars. People who move from Kansas City and all over to world to L.A. to get their big shot and their waiting tables right now. They have talent, but their waiting tables. Their not ever going to get their shot because this business is tough, and if you get a lucky break it’s because you knew somebody or they saw your reel or somehow you caught lightening in a bottle. So we said we’ve gotta do something and whoever gives away the most movies will win a speaking role in the next movie, and if your thing is not to speak and you don’t want to be an actor then we’ll give you something to put on your resume. Whether it’s hair, makeup, wardrobe, whether it’s PA, whether it’s co-directing you know we’ll let you do a scene, but you’ve got to give away the most movies in order to do that. And you can see that, it’ll be on our next movie on YouTube.

You mentioned earlier that you are pushing for a theatrical release, is that correct?

Yes, we are pushing for a theatrical and because of what’s happening with ‘Machete’ I really believe we’re going to get theatrical because I’m getting calls from different people, different studios are calling. Let’s face it, ‘Machete’ is going to be a monster, that’s Danny Trejo’s ‘Rocky’. It’s going to be huge, and we have the only other film starring Danny Trejo as a vigilante in the U.S. ready to go. We’re hoping to get a nice theater release out of it but we’re still giving away the free movie and we’re not changing that. We’re not going to sell out to the studio, that’s not going to happen. We might do theatrical with the studio but we’re not going to stop our gameplan. We need to build that distribution channel and that’s one of the reasons we’re doing this because we’re collecting emails and that fanbase and we’re going direct to them so we can give them product. Not just ‘Vengeance’ but ‘Vengeance 2’ and all the stuff we’re doing, because Danny is going to do studio films but he’s doing his independent stuff over here. Dannys got a five film deal to do five vigilante films, five ‘Vengeance’ films with this company and that’s what we’re doing. These are exclusive deals.

When do you think fans will be able to get their hands on the film?

You know what? It’s going to be in ’10 but a lot is going to revolve around ‘Machete’. Because if their going to release ‘Machete’ this year then we’re going to hold, we’re going to hold for the fans because it’s going to be more exciting to see ‘Machete’ then to go get a free film. We’re hoping to run the ‘Vengeance’ trailer before the ‘Machete’ movie, or the ‘Machete’ trailer before the ‘Vengeance’ movie, whoever goes first. And I think, we’re figuring it out right now, if Rodriguez releases ‘Machete’ this year then ‘Vengeance’ will be slated for the first of next year. But if they don’t release till the first of next year then we’ll slate for this year. It’s a really cool thing for us, it’s a great thing because here’s the reality: I went out and took a risk a long time ago knowing Trejo was a star. When everybody kept saying he was a character actor. I put my money where my mouth was and we went out and did it! So here we are, and we told everybody that it was going to happen and it was gonna go but people didn’t believe us so we went out and did it and here we have it.

What can we look forward in you directing next?

‘Vengeance 2? is ready to go, I’ve written a script. Danny is doing some touch ups on it on what he would like to see, stuff he wants to change. We’re casting in late  September. We’ve got some of the cast coming back, we’ve talked to four or five people that want to come back and do their role again.

What advise would you give to someone in the industry who is just starting their career out in that field?

dannytrejo-7

Stay away from independent distributors. Don’t give them your product, do not do it if they don’t have a gameplan because you will hate yourself later. I know that the twenty-five grand or twenty grand or fifty or hundred grand that they offer you sounds big but it’s not big because they don’t know what the hell their doing. As a matter of fact I’m going to have a funeral for independent distributors. I’m just looking for a plot right now, I’m going to literally have a funeral for ’em! Because it’s over with, those days are over and it’s not like that anymore. I don’t know if you remember when Rick Rubin had a funeral for his label but it’s the same thing, I’m having a funeral for independent distributors. It’s changing man, it’s over, stay away from ’em! Because they don’t know what their doing, you’re going to lose your dream you’re going to lose your hard work, you’re going to lose all that to some guy that has no plan or clue. It’s not his fault, it’s just the way the economy is shifting. Unless you have studio distribution you’re not going to make it. If you’re lucky enough to get some sort of Oscar nod you’re going to be fine, otherwise you need to find your audience and you need to build your audience and become your own distribution. Cause you know, Blockbuster might not be here next year. So you just don’t know. Stay away from independent distributors, they’ve got great sales pitches and if you’re new in this game you’re like “Yeah!”, they’re going to tell you “It’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be on the shelves and it’s gonna blow off.” They’re gonna hit you with the pitch to sign your product because they need as much as they can get. What they’re not telling you is that they don’t have the money to promote your product. That they can get you in Target and Wal-Mart, and what’s going to happen is their just going to bunch you together with ten other titles and get you out there. You’re going to end up in the discount bin, you’re going to get charge-backs and all kinds of videos back. You’re going to be hating life and your dreams going to get killed. Don’t do it! Be prepared when you write your first bit of dialogue, be prepared when you shoot your first scene, know that you may have to do this yourself, that you may have to distribute this yourself. That’s the reality of it because you could have never told me from the minute I came up I didn’t want it to be like this “line”. You could have never told me that we were going to have to distribute this ourselves. We have stars! You just gotta be careful man because with these guys it’s not like it used to be, and if there’s a bunch of filmmakers that want to be part of the independent distributor’s funeral let me know! [laughs] Let’s get together and have a funeral in everybody’s city.

I think it’s going to turn out great! Is there anything that you’d like to add?

vengeance-danny-trejo

I think I clarified that it’s not that we didn’t have any takers, it was that we didn’t believe in the song and dance. You know, Tech N9ne did the same thing. He was trying to get major record deals and they just weren’t listening to him. So he did a campaign and it was “Fuck the Industry”, and he actually did a good job because now he’s big enough that he doesn’t need the labels. [laughs]

You know I think if I could say anything it would be “Fuck the independent distributor.” Let’s go to war with them that’s how I would say it, you know what I mean?! Let’s battle because that’s what’s goin on. I was talking to Tech and I was like “Look, I really like what you did and I think I have to do the same thing in the movie business.” I can’t get a major studio because you have to prove to them that things work then they come along. And it’s bad. So I’m like I gotta take the same anti-approach, fuck the independent distributors we’ll do it ourselves. That’s from me, not from Trejo, I’m coming out that way saying it. I can’t speak for Danny, Danny speaks for himself. But that’s the route we’re taking and it’s sad. I don’t know if you’ve ever had that type of situation but man it’s horrible for people! There are filmmakers out there that are just broken because no one ever told them “Hey, wait a minute, be careful!” With all the big dreams you’ve got to get out and hustle your product. And that’s why we’re doing ‘Vengeance’ where you can be in the next movie and we’ll probably continue to do it. You never know, we may find the next Danny Trejo out there, we may find the next Marlon Brando out there, or Nick Cage, or Meryl Streep, we may find a great one they just need that shot. If they’re willing to go out and tell the world about this movie so they can win this contest then you know they’ve got some hustle in them and that they really want to do something.

Thanks for your time and we will be spreading the word about ‘Vengeance’!

Thank you!
